Summer Watermelon Splash

This is one of the best thirst quenching smoothie drinks you can get and a delightfully simple recipe. Both watermelon and mint are cooling, fresh ingredients. The scent of mint is invigorating and when combined with the natural unprocessed sugars in the watermelon, it will help give you an energy lift.

Madhu's post tempted my senses for watermelon. Yesterday, I bought my first watermelon of the season. And I made this:

Serves 1. No preparation required.
Ingredients:

300 g Watermelon pieces, seeds removed.
1 tablespoon lemon juice
7-10 mint leaves

Instructions:
Blend in a mixer.Serve chilled with ice cubes.

Although it's not summer yet on this part of the globe, back home summer is in full throttle. And this is in fond memory of my friends in India. I miss all of you!

Trivia: When looking for watermelon ripeness, the underside of the melon which touched the ground should be a yellowish color. Slap the side of the watermelon; if ripe, it will resonate with a hollow thump.

Watermelon is 92% water. But it is a medicine for all ailments. It's a complete balanced diet and one can live on it for a week without any supplements! Honestly, this has been tried and tested.
